Andrea Cortez, Music Therapist, Sound Artist & Meditation Instructor

Andrea is a board-certified music therapist, sound artist, and sound meditation instructor. She specializes in studying the effects of music on the brain and body to help people rehabilitate from brain injury and neurological disorders. She founded the Mind Body Music Center with the mission to utilize and promote music’s inherent therapeutic and healing qualities in order to elevate the minds, bodies, and hearts of others. Her work has brought her to playing music for animals and even with plants using a fascinating device called Plant Wave that detects electrical variations in plants and these variations are then translated into pitch messages that play musical instruments.
